This course provides you with a range of specialist technical practical skills and knowledge which will equip you to seek employment or further learning and training within the land and wildlife management industries.
This qualification gives you the opportunity to study a range of specialist technical practical skills and knowledge that build upon the core skills required for working in the countryside such as estate maintenance skills, population surveys, safe use of equipment and machinery with further areas of study such as land use and recreation, and pest and predator control. You can
then learn additional specialist skills such as woodland habitat management, estate skills, machinery operations, countryside recreation, surveying and identification.
We endeavour to work with local employers who will contribute to the knowledge and delivery of training. Trips, visits and guest speakers will provide demonstrations and talks on the industry. This practically based training is ideal preparation for gaining
employment in the land and wildlife industries or specialist further study.
